GS Hydraulics, GS North America Announce New Name: GS Global Resources

NEW BERLIN, Wis. – May 1, 2014 – Since 1972 GS Hydraulics and, more recently, GS North America have solved problems at the intersection of fluid power and electronic control for industrial and mobile machine OEMs. Today’s launch of GS Global Resources is the first step toward renaming the component distributor and application systems integrator under a single name and brand strategy.



“GS Hydraulics and GS North America did many similar things in different parts of the country,” GS Global Resources CEO John Thornton says. “GS Global Resources allows us to more accurately position our company as we continue to grow and expand our geographic reach. Most importantly, however, the new name creates efficiencies for customers and employees alike.”

For 40 years, the world’s most recognizable industrial and mobile OEMs have trusted GS for continuous technology and innovation transfer to deliver speed to market, improved safety, productivity, predictability and profitability.

“As an extension of OEMs’ engineering teams, GS Global Resources will continue to simplify the complex, streamline designs and optimize value chains,” Mark Torbett, VP-Sales & Marketing says. “Competitive advantage and machine performance will continue to improve every time for our OEMs. And our integrated applications will perform for the life of the machine, and the lives of those who touch it.”

GS Global Resources’ rare technical talent helps OEMs interpret, adapt and adopt technology. Whether reacting to market forces or changing markets altogether, GS Global Resources’ talent, scalability and flexibility are beyond compare in solving industrial and mobile machine OEM challenges in hydraulic, electronic, mechanical and software applications.

“We’ve always delivered pragmatic system and component design, innovative and reliable technologies, as well as production and market support through a single point of engineering accountability,” Thornton says. “Now the single name of GS Global Resources makes interacting with us even easier for customers, vendors and employees.”
